There was pandemonium at the front of Tomogram Electronics plaza situated along the Old Lagos/Asaba Road, Boji-Boji, Owa, when angry youths on Friday, December 2, 2022 demanded that a motorcycle thief who ran into the plaza for safety be handed over.
The suspect alleged to have been caught in the act of stealing along Baleke Street fled abandoning the motorcycle and was given a hot chase.
Despite the quick response of Owa Youths Security outfit, the angry mob comprising mainly of Okoda riders, blocked the plaza demanding the hoodlum be brought out to be dealt with in the way they want.
However, it took the timely intervention of the police at Agbor Police Division who whisked the suspect away. Demonstrating their anger, the angry mob threw stones at the police.
Many persons at the scene lamented that the suspect could have been killed as pay back for many motorcycles stolen in Orogodo metropolis and the entire Ika nation in recent time.
